Les Ballets Jazz de Montréal

January 16 – 18, 2014  ·  Zellerbach Theatre

Known as the “feel-good company,” Les Ballets Jazz de Montréal consistently delivers sophisticated, technically-stunning works by the world’s most renowned choreographers. “Runway-sleek with polished moves” meeting “the energy of a tsunami with stamina to spare” (Los Angeles Times), the company is among the dance world’s elite—coolly stylized, athletic and refined. The program features the Philadelphia premieres of Harry, a dark comedy about a young man’s trials and tribulations created by Israeli-American choreographer Barak Marshall, Closer, a romantic pas de deux contributed by Black Swan choreographer and new Director of Dance for the Paris Opera Ballet, Benjamin Millepied, and Fuel, a compelling new work by Cayetano Soto inspired by music about the modern industrial world of fuel and machines.
